Iran Evaluating 13 Retaliation Scenarios To Inflict “Historic Nightmare” On US –Zero Hedge
“Breaking a 5-day silence over its response for the US killing of General Qassem Soleimani, on Tuesday Iran said it was assessing 13 scenarios to inflict a ‘historic nightmare’ on the US. ‘Even if the weakest of these scenarios gain a consensus, its implementation can be a historic nightmare for the Americans,’ Ali Shamkhani, the head of Iran’s national security council, was cited by Fars news agency, adding that, ‘For now, for intelligence reasons, we cannot provide more information to the media.’….In response, the U.S. issued a warning to shipping in the Middle East over the possibility of Iranian action against U.S. maritime interests, the Associated Press reported, citing a statement. Soleimani’s death has rippled through the Middle East, with the U.S. and its allies on high alert for a retaliation attack by Iran. Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iran’s foreign minister, said Tuesday that the U.S. would suffer consequences for the killing of Soleimani ‘at a time and place of Iran’s choosing.’ Zarif added the U.S. must leave the Middle East and warned that if they don’t, a new multi-generational war could erupt….’We will surely take revenge, but if America dares takes any action, we will set alight those places Americans hold dear.’….Earlier, President Trump outlined 52 Iranian sites that U.S. forces would attack if Iran dares to retaliate. And while the world awaits for Iran to pick one or more of the 13 scenarios, on Monday the Pentagon dispatched additional forces to the Middle East.”
